The beautiful country of Uganda is home for Elijah, his mother, and his younger sister. This young boy is described by others as very clever, which explains his dream of one day becoming a doctor. However, he is currently struggling to receive a proper education. His widowed mother is trying to keep Elijah and his sister in school, but this is difficult because she is currently not working and does not have access to another source income. A sponsorship through AMG will provide Elijah with the educational assistance he needs while providing him nutrient-rich food, access to healthcare, and opportunities to hear God’s Word. Please consider sponsoring Elijah so he can continue his education in pursuit of becoming a doctor, and so his family can be enriched by the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
